More about

Scotland Street School Museum explores the history of education in Scotland. It is housed within a former school – a Grade A listed building designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh between 1903 and 1906. The museum also offers a varied programme of temporary exhibitions. Three rooms reconstruct classrooms from different periods: Victorian times, World War II and the 1950s–1960s. Interactive sessions that recreate the teaching style of these eras are led by actors and available to school groups. The cookery room, cloakrooms and ceramic-tiled drill hall have been restored to Mackintosh’s original 1906 designs. Temporary exhibitions have included the ‘BBC Wildlife Photographer of the Year’, ‘Uncovering Industry: The M74 Dig’, ‘A La Mode: Parisian fashion from the Journal des Dames et des Modes, 1912–1914’ and ‘The Glesga that I Used to Know: 1970s Glasgow – Through the Lens’.
